Evokes the desire, power and ritual gestures playfully in the architectural and psychological spaces of a gallery
Music for film
In 1994 I met the video artist Geoffrey Weary in Sydney. I played him various minimal music compositions and he was very interested in using parts from my composition “Piano” in his video film “Museum”.
“Museum evokes the desire, power and ritual gestures playfully in the architectural and psychological spaces of the gallery. The work was originally shot in the exhibition halls of the Louvre, focusing on the work the neo – classicist painter J. L. David and the work he produced during and immediately after the French Revolution. Attention is drawn to the physical and psychological conflicts that the paintings evoke as vast crowds flow through the gallery space, briefly observing the dramas at play in the works on the walls.In this surreal picture space the observer becomes the observed and the subject becomes the object of scrutiny.”
